And imagine if the rubber match does happen and somehow it ends up with Brock having a broken neck. It could/would set MMA back for years. I could even see Congress getting involved to "investigate" MMA. They will do anything to avoid the issues that really matter. Not all pub is good pub for MMA. Jim Rome even opened his show yesterday with Mir's stupid comments.
I think you have a point on the "not even scheduled to fight" statement. So I give you that.
I still think trash talk is trash talk. I think the only mistake he's making is running his mouth about Brock again...
Mir is obsessed with Brock. I've never seen anything like it other than Ken Shamrock and Tito... Even that wasn't on the level of OBSESSION as Mir though... It's like freaking Fatal Attraction!
I'm no fan of apology tours though, I can tell you that. I think the apology is due to pressure from Dana and the F bros, rather than Mir genuinely feeling bad.
Like when Kramer blasted the N-word... he went on this freaking month long apology tour! Why? He obviously just stated how he felt. If that's how he feels, who gives a shit. The apology tour does nothing but bring more attention to his ignorance?
If anything HAS to be done, best just to say "Look, I screwed up, I'm human, get over it".
But yea,.... I'm just waiting for Mir to show up with the buzz cut, hair died Brock's color, matching tatoo's etc... Shit is scary! Obsessed!
It's one loss Frank... (Should have been two considering that first fight Brock mauled him then made a huge rookie mistake)... Get over it and move on.
Mir has looked awesome since the Brock fight, why he feels the need to continue bashing Brock is beyond me. Just work your way back up and get it done.
I love trash talking BUT!!!! When you talk it and get your ass beat... You are the one that has to eat those words and you are then fair game to everyone in the world to become the butt of a joke.
Once again, good point my friend.
